RECREATE IN THE HEALTHIEST STATE

Vermont vacations aren't meant entirely for sitting around. Get out there and have some fun!


One of the best parts of Vermont is that we have it all, and so close by. Choose an adventure below to learn more about the many recreational opportunities offered year round in Vermont.



Summer Hiking

Go For A Hike

The Long Trail runs the entire length of the state, along the spine of the Green Mountains.

It is the oldest long distance hiking trail in the nation. That should tell you a lot about how important hiking is to the state. Whether you're looking for a day hike, over-nighter or long distance backpacking trip, this is the right place.

Vermont Fishing

Traditional Angling

From Shore, Dock or Boat

Angling Vermont's waters is the traditional way for fishermen to chase after their catch. This is the most popular way to fish, especially for kids, due to the simplistic form it requires.
